Rhody Surf specializes in teaching our future professional surfers the basics of surfing in a fun, yet educational group surf lesson.  The popular program is Newport’s only Surf Camp and is conveniently located on the popular Easton’s Beach (aka First Beach), less than a mile from Downtown Newport.

Surf Camp begins on the beach to cover the basics with our 'dry lesson' then dives into the ocean, learning how to catch waves. All students are provided with a beginner-friendly surfboard and Rhody Surf rashguard or wetsuit rental included in the price of Surf Camp. Many of our surf instructors are elementary school teachers during the off-season and have years of experience teaching children the basics of surfing.

Surf Camp starts at the Rhody Surf beachside trailer on Easton’s Beach for check-in at 9 AM sharp. The youth surf program runs every summer weekday, rain or shine, from 9 - 11 AM. Surf Camp students must be under the age of 17 and know how to swim. All of our students receive complimentary beach parking during Surf Camp. To ensure our award-winning program is safe, informative and personal, we keep our camp sizes small.  

We generally have no more then a dozen campers per day and have a 4:1 student/teacher ratio for Surf Camp.  Parents may stay during camp to watch and take photos, or may drop children off but please be on time for pick-up when Surf Camp is done. For that reason, the program fills up quickly and we highly encourage scheduling in advance but take reservations up until the night before camp, pending availability.
